One of my geeky loves is technology accessories. If it will work with my iPod, I will fall in love. One day online I stumbled on a pair of Captain America headphones. The artwork brought me back to the earlier days of the character. As a child Captain America was one of my favorite characters. I even made up a song about him that I would walk around the house singing. I thought the headphones were looked pretty cool and figured “why not?”.
The box arrived and I was super excited to test them out. One problem…my son saw them first. Since he is really big into boxes, I thought that is what he wanted. I was not so lucky. He wanted my headphones. I don’t like to share my geeky toys, but since I was convinced he wouldn’t like them, I let him try them on. I was wrong again. He loved them so much he declared “I think these will be mine now” and then walked off to play “Where’s my water?” on the iPad. 45 minutes later, I had to beg to get them back.
I have always wanted my son to have a pair of headphones for car trips and other times I didn’t feel like listening to “Wheres my water?” or “Sonic the Hedgehog” . I have looked at most brands and even bought a few different pairs. He never found them interesting or comfortable enough to wear. I had given up on the fight and felt doomed to forever hear Car’s 20 million times on road trips. It never occurred to me it would be my headphones he would want.
After I finally had my mitts on them I realized why he liked them so much. They are pretty comfy and the sound isn’t too bad either. They are certainly not Boise quality, but for a pair of stylized headphones, they are pretty nice. Unlike the new child headphones, these do not have the volume control, but since my iPod has that feature built in, I’m not missing it.
Since it is so hard to find my son headphones I am giving this one up and just going to get my own. Its amazing how I thought I was beaten and then out of the blue here comes Captain America to save the day. Now gone are the days of listening to Cars 20 million times while on a road trip. Thank you Captain America. You’re my hero!
